Huntingdon, Pa. – As part of Homecoming and Family Weekend 2017, select Juniata instrumental ensembles will perform together in a concert titled “Preview of Bands.” The concert, which is the second annual of its type, will take place in the newly renovated Alumni Hall in Brumbaugh Academic Center at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017. The event, which will include the College’s wind symphony, jazz ensemble and college/community concert band, is free and open to the public.

“I am excited to once again provide a concert at homecoming, and excited for our new members’ first concert,” says Jim Latten, professor of music. “I am also especially excited that we get to perform it in the newly remodeled Alumni Hall.”

Among other pieces, the musical groups will perform Beethoven’s “Consecration of The House” to celebrate renovations to Alumni Hall . The groups will also preview future performances.

“Preview of Bands” will be the first of many music events hosted at the College, most of which will be performed in Rosenberger Auditorium, Halbritter Center for the Performing Arts.
